Back in Tucson for the month of July.

The famous fellow in the striped shirt and black rimmed specs will be in 25 businesses in two areas in central Tucson: 4th Avenue and at the shops on the corner of Broadway & Country Club (AKA Broadway Village).
Those who spot Waldo (well, a 6" version of him) in 20 locations can enter a raffle to win fabulous Waldo prizes as well as prizes from many of the participating businesses.

Want to participate?  Pick up a  Waldo Passport at

Antigone Books (411 N. 4th Ave) or

You have the entire month of July to find 20 Waldos.  Your passport must be handed in by Thursday July 31 at 7pm.

Hillary Clinton
Hillary Rodham Clinton's inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America's 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future.
"All of us face hard choices in our lives," Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the center of world events. "Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become." 

..Freshly Picked

Sally Ride By Lynn Sherr

An inspiring story of a charmed life ending too soon.  An enjoyable read especially for the wry comments from Ride's mother. --Cheryl
